Shree Mahaganesha Pancharatnam

Ganesha is the God of wisdom. He is worshipped before the beginning of any  endeavor. He gives the necessary skill (buddhi) to do the task and bestows  success (siddhi) to the effort. Upon intent meditation, the form of Ganesha symbolically reveals many noble truths. The trunk of an elephant, which can carry heavy logs of wood as well as pick up a thin blade of grass, represents the subtle discrimination we need to distinguish between the real and the illusory. The little mouse he rides on represents our own ego, which should be a small but efficient vehicle to take us around in the world, but should be inconspicuous and subservient to wisdom. Ganesha’s form is revered as the very personification of the symbol “Om” the representation of the universal spirit.

REMOVER OF OBSTACLES, HE LIVES IN THE HEARTS OF YOGIS FOREVER AND EVER.

I REFLECT SOLELY UPON GANESHA, FOREVER AND EVER.
